Stand with workers and communities against McDonald’s

Dear PAOV,

McDonald’s has a long history of employing business practices that are devastating to the lives of workers and their communities.

The fast food chain continues to source potatoes grown with drift-prone pesticides that put the health of nearby rural and Indigenous communities at risk, despite claiming “sustainability priorities” and “responsible sourcing.”

Stand with communities in potato-growing country to demand that McDonald’s deals with its pesticide problem.

We’ll deliver your message to McDonald’s CEO Steve Easterbrook and other executives right before the corporation’s annual shareholder meeting on May 24.

As the largest potato buyer in the country, McDonald’s can influence the market tremendously. We’re calling on the fast food giant to use its purchasing power to require that growers use safe, sustainable practices to produce potatoes.

Speak up! McDonald’s needs to hear from all of us that pesticide drift doesn’t make for happy communities or happy meals.

We’re working with partners at Corporate Accountability, Food Chain Workers Alliance, HEAL Food Alliance, Restaurant Opportunities Centers United and Toxic Taters to demand that McDonald’s executives take real, meaningful action on this and other abusive policies.

McDonald’s also pays poverty wages and denies benefits to their workers, practices predatory marketing of junk food to children and pushes their corporate agenda through trade groups like the National Restaurant Association.

Urge McDonald’s executives to put an end to their abusive business practices — including growing potatoes with harmful, drift-prone pesticides.

Thank you for speaking up.
